Well now here’s a bit of good news.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court rejected an appeal Monday from ousted Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who lost his job after defying a federal order to dismantle a Ten Commandments monument.
Moore has become a high-profile crusader for Ten Commandment monuments as a result of the dispute over his own 2 1/2-ton granite display in the state courthouse.
A federal judge ruled that Moore violated the Constitution’s ban on government promotion of religion when he placed the monument in the rotunda of the judicial building in the middle of the night in 2001.
The display was moved last year over Moore’s objections, and a state court removed him from office.
Moore’s lawyers had called on the Supreme Court to “remedy this travesty of justice” and give him his job back. The high court declined, without comment.
We’ve written about Roy’s Rock several times in the past and it’s good to hear that the Supreme Court isn’t going to waste time and taxpayer money listening to Roy Moore whine about losing his job. I doubt this will be the last we hear from Roy Moore, but we can always hope.
